Ongava Lodge is a luxurious property, located on one of the largest private reserves in Namibia -the 30,000 hectare Ongava Game Reserve - on the southern boundary of Etosha.
It consists of twelve air-conditioned, brick and thatch chalets with en-suite bathroom. Communal facilities include a hilltop lounge and dining area, both under thatch, together with a pool offering spectacular views over the plains below. There is also a floodlit waterhole.
Wildlife activities include game drives in both Ongava Game Reserve and Etosha, walking safaris and night drives, and the lodge is particularly famous for offering a chance to track rhino on foot.
Its sister camp, Little Ongava, has just three suites, each with a plunge pool – perfect for a group of friends. There is also a tented camp with eight comfortable tents and a small pool.
Land of Contrasts Self-drive
This is Namibia at its very best, a wilderness destination of outstanding beauty at every turn, taking you north to the salt pans of Etosha National Park, the remote Kunene and its desert elephant, before heading down the Skeleton Coast to the awesome Namib Desert. Choose between self drive or guided.
